Cree, Inc. has participated in a series of energy efficiency renovations across U.S. Embassies in Vienna, Rome, Berlin, Madrid, and Lisbon. Cree’s installation of interior and exterior LED lighting is part of a program of the Alliance to Save Energy and The League of Green Embassies, a U.S. Department of State initiative promoting international cooperation in energy efficiency and clean technology.
The range of LED lighting products being installed at each embassy varies according to its unique requirements. The energy savings for these installations is between 45 and 76 percent compared to the old lighting. Older, energy-wasting lighting is being replaced with energy-efficient LED lighting in security lighting, indoor lighting, area lighting, walkway lighting and parking lot and roadway lighting.
